As someone who loathes government-mandated race preferences, I look forward to years of laugh-riot fun as preference-loving blacks and Hispanics duel it out, fighting each other over government goodies.

I recently learned about a case involving a black cop named Kenneth A. Boyd in Wilmington, Delaware who claims he was passed over for promotion because he’s black.

Boyd alleges that police chief Michael J. Szczerba promoted an undeserving Hispanic instead. Oh, why does this sound familiar? According to The News Journal, Szczerba “fostered a diverse police force,” which is code for skin-color preferences. Only in this case, the Negro wasn’t the “preferred minority.”

A preferred minority group is one that is ostensibly under-represented in certain jobs, schools, etc. Asians also are a minority group, but they are not “preferred,” particularly as far as college admissions are concerned, because they tend to be overrepresented. In fact, admissions for Asians may be suppressed in order to conform to liberals’ notions of a proper racial balance. U.S. Commission on Civil Rights member Peter Kirsanow writes:

Asian Americans, though only four percent of the nation’s population, account for nearly 20 percent of all medical students. Forty-five percent of Berkeley’s freshman class, but only 12 percent of California’s populace, consists of Asian-Americans. And at UT-Austin, 18 percent of the freshman class is Asian American, compared to three percent for the state… President Clinton worried that, without preferences, “there are universities in California that could fill their entire freshman classes with nothing but Asian-Americans.”

Blacks have always been THE preferred minority group, but those days are coming to an end. Cases like Boyd’s are only the beginning of the battles between Hispanics and blacks for preferred minority status. Hispanic groups are already urging the federal government to hire more Hispanics. Incidentally, whites are becoming a minority group in states like Texas and California. Will they one day become a preferred minority?

With illegal aliens working on the cheap, look for more stories about blacks crying,”Hispanic racist!” If for no other reason than Hispanics are supplanting them as “preferred,” blacks should be speaking out against amnesty-for-illegal-aliens the loudest.

Tackling welfare’s racial gap January 23, 2007

Counties are under pressure to get more black and American Indian families off of assistance or risk losing a chunk of federal money.

Sixteen counties across Minnesota have resolved to get more black and American Indian families off state welfare this year.

It’s a goal that may sound surprisingly blunt, but public agencies call it staggering in its complexity. Not only are black and American Indian families hugely overrepresented on welfare rolls, but recent studies show those groups, overall, also remain on public assistance longer than whites, Asians, Hispanics and Somali immigrants.

In suburban counties, officials say the growing number of low-income minorities migrating from urban areas has added a sensitive racial dimension to an old challenge of meeting the needs of the poor.

“The goal that the state has given us is that African-Americans and Native Americans should be doing as well as everyone else,” said Ruth Krueger, who directs Dakota County’s Department of Employment and Economic Assistance.

“Our overarching goal is to get everyone off welfare,” she said. “We don’t want to find that there is one group that is being left behind on that.”

And there’s little time. Millions of dollars for needy families could be at stake.

The U.S. Deficit Reduction Act signed into law last year requires that states get half of family-welfare recipients involved in jobs or job-related programs for at least 30 hours a week or they risk losing a share of federal help. Currently, about a third of Minnesota’s welfare families meet that goal.

To calculate progress, the law no longer provides states with credit for families that have moved off welfare entirely.

If Minnesota’s numbers don’t improve by 2009, the state could lose $13.5 million of the $267 million it receives from the federal government each year to help poor families make ends meet.

Justice Department Finds Racial Disparities in Domestic Violence Rates December 31, 2006

MSNBC currently has an article in reference to the Justice Department’s report which covers the domestic violence rates between 1993 and 2004. However, one of the most disheartening aspects of the report is that racial disparities are evident within it.

Excerpt:

Domestic violence rates fell sharply between 1993 and 2004, the Justice Department said Thursday, noting that American Indian women and native Alaskan women are far more likely to be victimized than whites and other minorities.

Excerpt:

Stevens said police have been less successful responding to and deterring abusive behavior in some minority communities, where racism and cultural differences can keep reporting rates low.

Over the 12-year reporting period, about 18 out of every 1,000 American Indian and native Alaskan women were victimized — a violence rate three times higher than among white women.
Black women were more likely than white women to be abused but the study also found that they were more likely to report their abuse to the police than white women.

Women in their early 20s and women who were divorced or separated had the greatest risk of being abused, the study found. Violence was also more common in low-income households.

Asian males, white males and the elderly reported the lowest rates of partner violence.

There are some surprising facts about domestic violence that can be seen at EndAbuse.org

Also for those readers that may not have it, the national domestic violence hotline number is:  1-800-799-SAFE (7233)

Frat Boys Who Made Racist Comments In ‘Borat’ Sue November 11, 2006

PDF: Actual Lawsuit Documents

    The joke was on two unsuspecting fraternity boys who thought they were being interviewed by a Kazakh reporter named Borat and made racist and sexist comments on camera.

    But now that they’ve learned their encounter would appear in the No. 1 movie “Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan,” they’re not laughing anymore. A lawsuit filed Thursday on their behalf claims they were duped into appearing in the spoof documentary and “engaged in behavior that they otherwise would not have engaged in.” “Borat” follows the adventures of comedian Sacha Baron Cohen’s Kazakh journalist character in a blend of fiction and improvised comic encounters as he travels across the United States and mocks Americans. The plaintiffs were not named in the lawsuit “to protect themselves from any additional and unnecessary embarrassment.” They were identified in the movie as fraternity members from a South Carolina university, and appeared drunk as they made insulting comments about women and minorities to Cohen’s character. The lawsuit claims that in October 2005, a production crew took the students to a bar to drink and “loosen up” before participating in what they were told would be a documentary to be shown outside of the United States.

    New Jersey-based company accused of discrimination appoints Black vice president November 3, 2006

    In the wake of an embarrassing and potentially costly lawsuit accusing it of blatant racial discrimination, New Jersey-based Public Service Electric & Gas (PSE&G) last month announced the appointment of its first African-American senior executive in recent memory.
    Rodney Dickens, 49, was named vice president of asset management and centralized services for PSE&G in early October, making him the highest-ranking Black executive at the company. Dickens will become the third man in the executive chain of command at PSE&G. Dickens has been with PSE&G—the largest provider of electrical power in the state of New Jersey for nearly 30 years.
    “This is a great opportunity, and I look forward to the challenges ahead,” Dickens said recently in an interview with the AmNews. Many challenges will indeed face Dickens, as PSE&G is under fire for countless allegations of blatant acts of racial discrimination against some current and former employees.
    The most recent lawsuit—filed in August in the state Superior Court of Newark, claims PSE&G “practices a widespread and consistent pattern of discrimination in the service division. In addition, the suit alleges that service requests are racially coded to ensure that Black service techs are dispatched to minority communities and white techs are sent to suburban areas.

    Ignore anti-Prop 2 scare tactics November 2, 2006

    Legal Experts: Michigan’s Proposal 2 likely to hold up
    I n 2003 the U.S. Supreme Court, in a split decision, ruled that the University of Michigan’s undergraduate admissions systems amounted to an unconstitutional racial quota. But the court did allow state schools, if they wished, to continue using a more “holistic” system aimed at giving minorities the benefit of the doubt.

    Dial forward three years. According to data once again wrested from the university under a Freedom of Information Act request, the Center for Equal Opportunity, based in Herndon, Va., found that a black applicant with a cumulative SAT score of 1240 and a 3.2 grade-point average in high school has a 9-in-10 chance of being admitted to Michigan’s undergraduate program. For whites or Asians, the chances were 1-in-10.

    In effect, nothing has changed in Ann Arbor. Which goes a long way to explain why Michigan voters are being asked to consider Proposal 2, the Michigan Civil Rights Initiative, which would flatly bar government from using “affirmative action programs that give preferential treatment to groups or individuals” based on race, ethnicity, gender and other suspect factors.

    Proposal 2 is the same as amendments to the California and Washington constitutions that were approved by wide margins.

    But a multi-million-dollar ad campaign organized by labor, business and political elites of both parties is frantically throwing sand in the eyes of the electorate with charges that Proposal 2 would be the end of civilization as we know it.

    The campaign may work. From 75 percent approval, the Michigan Civil Rights Initiative has sunk to less than 50 percent in polls recently. “Michigan is a much tougher place, politically, than either California or Washington state,” says Ward Connerly, the California businessman who has backed all three measures.

    But the scare campaign against Prop 2 is just that: a scare campaign. California and Washington are doing just fine in the wake of their bans on race preferences. Yes, minority enrollment at a few of the most selective state schools is down, but overall minority enrollment in the state system is up. Female contractors can no longer count on a big boost when bidding for government work, but female income continues to rise overall.

    The anti-Prop 2 campaign suffers an even more crucial flaw: It is simply unable to explain why more discrimination would lead to less discrimination. At a big rally against Prop 2 in Detroit 10 days ago, Jesse Jackson gave a particularly weird explanation of why he opposes a ban on preferences. Men of all skin colors play for the Detroit Tigers, he rightly noted, but no baseball fan would think to root for a St. Louis Cardinals player simply because of his skin color. “Diversity” leads to strength, he asserted.

    Racism and Discrimination Alive and Well October 19, 2006

    For a decade now, my Center for Equal Opportunity has documented the double standards used by colleges and universities in giving preference in admission to blacks and Hispanics while disfavoring better qualified Whites and Asians.

    In July 2003, the Supreme Court struck down the University of Michigan’s undergraduate affirmative action admissions program, which favored Blacks and, to a lesser extent, Hispanics. But three new CEO studies released this week show that preferences, for blacks especially, have gotten worse in subsequent years. And these preferences extend to law and medical school admissions as well.

    In 2003, the Supreme Court handed down two decisions on Michigan’s admissions programs. In Gratz v. Bollinger, the Court ruled that the university’s undergraduate program, which awarded extra points on the basis of race or ethnicity, was unconstitutional. In Grutter v. Bollinger, which examined the law school’s admissions procedures, the Court upheld the school’s program, which it contended took race into account but did not mechanically award specific points for race or ethnicity.

    Deja-Katrina? US rescue bogs down in Lebanon July 18, 2006

    BEIRUT — Thousands of Americans whose vacations and business trips to Lebanon have degenerated with sickening speed into stints in a battle zone remained stranded here under Israeli bombardment Monday, their frustration and anger mounting because the U.S. government hasn’t gotten them out faster.

    Waiting around Beirut with bags packed and fingers crossed, U.S. citizens derided the embassy for busy phone lines, a lack of information and gnawing uncertainty over when and whether they will get out. Hundreds were expected to be shipped to Cyprus today, but how long the full evacuation will take remains uncertain.

    “I had heard it might take a week, two weeks. You hear so many things,” said Pamela Pattie, a 65-year-old professor. “Why in the world aren’t we getting it together?”

    The frustration has been intensified by news that other countries have already pulled many of their citizens out of Lebanon, efficiently and free of cost. A ferry chartered by the French government carried about 800 of its citizens and several dozen Americans to Cyprus on Monday. The U.S. military evacuated about 60 Americans by helicopter Sunday and Monday.

    Other nations have packed people into rented tour buses and driven them over the mountains to Syria. The U.S. State Department has warned Americans against traveling to Syria.

    The main U.S. evacuation plan involves a Pentagon-contracted cruise ship, the Orient Queen, due to arrive in Lebanon today to ferry people to Cyprus. The ship can carry about 750 passengers for the five-hour trip. Defense Department officials said other private ships were likely to be hired as well.

    Americans have been told to wait for a telephone call that could come in hours — or days. They’ve also been told they can’t board a ship unless they’ve signed a contract agreeing to repay the U.S. government for the price of their evacuation.

    The rules have angered Americans who are already fatigued and nervous after days of explosions. “I’m freaked out that our government is treating us this way,” snapped a Rutgers University student who had been studying Arabic at the American University of Beirut. She declined to give her name for fear she would be taken off the passenger list in retribution for criticizing the evacuation effort.

    “Are we a Third World country or what?” she said.

    Gibson: “Make more babies” because in “Twenty-five years … the majority of the population is Hispanic” July 16, 2006

    Is this comment that was made by John Gibson of Fox News’ The Big Story racist? Or is he right that Hispanic-American advocacy groups are set on “retaking old Mexico territories … by pure birth rate.” (Link).

    Summary: On The Big Story, John Gibson urged viewers to “[d]o your duty. Make more babies,” because he had found out, from a recently released report, that nearly half of all children under the age of five in the United States are minorities. Gibson added: “You know what that means? Twenty-five years and the majority of the population is Hispanic.” Gibson later repeated: “To put it bluntly, we need more babies.”

    On the May 11 edition of Fox News’ The Big Story, host John Gibson advised viewers during the “My Word” segment of his program to “[d]o your duty. Make more babies.” He then cited a May 10 article, which reported that nearly half of all children under the age of five in the United States are minorities. Gibson added: “By far, the greatest number [of children under five] are Hispanic. You know what that means? Twenty-five years and the majority of the population is Hispanic.” Gibson later claimed: “To put it bluntly, we need more babies.” Then, referring to Russia’s projected decline in population, Gibson claimed: “So far, we are doing our part here in America but Hispanics can’t carry the whole load. The rest of you, get busy. Make babies, or put another way — a slogan for our times: ‘procreation not recreation’.”

    As The Washington Post reported, the U.S. Census Bureau recently released population estimates that found that nearly half (45 percent) of U.S. children under five are racial or ethnic minorities, and that “the percentage is increasing mainly because the Hispanic population is growing so rapidly.” The U.S. Census notes that, “[e]stimates usually are for the present and the past, while projections are estimates of the population for future dates.” The U.S. Census last released its population projection in March 2004 and found that, by the year 2030, Hispanics will account for roughly 20 percent of the total population in the United States. The U.S. Census also projected that Hispanics will make up 24 percent of the nation’s population by 2050. The two-year old projection has not been updated to take into account the new data on the race and ethnicity of children under five.

    Gibson also noted that Europe is “not having enough babies to sustain their population,” adding that “[c]onsequently, they are inviting in more and more immigrants every year to take care of things and those immigrants are having way more babies than the native population, hence ‘Eurabia’.”
